More characteristics

The EKX 513 / 515 high rack stackers stand for high performance in the narrow aisle warehouse. They set new standards with regards to flexibility, low cost operation and ergonomics.

Flexibility through modular construction: this model has over 5 million possible configurations providing flexibility from the start. The advantage is adaptability to any warehousing and logistics operation. Intelligent truck management with our in house electronic controller, and CAN-Bus system keeps the options open for a wide range of requirements with a large number of additional safety features.

Excellent performance and energy efficiency: the important factors for fast throughput and outstanding cost efficiency. This is precisely what is provided by Jungheinrich’s 3-phase AC technology with higher performance and low energy usage. The advantage: full utilisation over two shifts in normal operation without battery change.
This high efficiency is available to the EKX operator with effortless ease. The cab provides a generous workplace with excellent visibility. At the centre of the operators cab is the electronically adjustable operators cab:

  • Informative colour display. Important operating data is easily and legibly laid out
  • All parameters and programmes can be set individually
  • Softkeys to control functions and menus
  • Travel and hydraulics control via thumb operation
  • Two-handed operation for high safety and operating comfort. Sensors register the operator’s touch and pass this information on to the onboard computer

  • Performance module (optional) for highest flexibility
  • RFID floor quality recognition control (standard)
  • Ergonomics and comfort
  • Commissioning and maintenance
  • High productivity
  • Energy management module
  • Jungheinrich warehouse navigation (optional)
  • Control and CAN-Bus system


Pioneer of 3-phase AC technology
Over 150,000 Jungheinrich 3-phase AC trucks are in use all over the world. This depth of knowledge is reflected in today’s drive and control technology:

  • Excellent productivity
  • Low energy consumption
  • Effective thermal economy
  • Reduced maintenance and wear


High productivity
